Star Manchester City duo out of Juventus clash
Turin, Nov 23 (IANS) Manchester City head coach Manuel Pellegrini on Monday revealed that defender Vincent Kompany and attacking midfielder David Silva will not be fit for the European Champions League group stage encounter against Juventus here on Wednesday.
Spanish international Silva has been out for six weeks due to an ankle injury while a calf injury is looking certain to force Belgium international Kompany out of the match against the Italian football champions.
“They are still injured. We hope in the future they can recover as soon as they can, but I don’t think any of them will be ready for Wednesday,” Pellegrini told the club’s website, mcfc.com.
City are coming off a 1-4 rout against Liverpool on Saturday in the English Premier League (EPL).
